Things are going great in our manufacturing business!
Buy this product now!!
No, we've already bought enough.
Mommy can we buy this cool new toy? I saw a cool advertisement about it!
From 1923 though 1929, worker output of manufactured goods increased by 32%. Things such as assembly lines and other machinery helped increase production rates. More production, more profit.
I'm sorry, but we are going to have to let you go...
There were many advertisements which persuaded people to buy even more products.
It eventually came to a point where people could only buy so much which slowed down sales. By 1929, many American stores and warehouses were way too supplied with goods that they needed to stop ordering from factories.
Why won't anyone come to my store? All of these products will go to waste!
Manufacturers had overproduced so much that they had to cutback, causing them to lay off many employees.
When the stock market crashed, even more people had lost their jobs and most of their savings as well.
People could only afford to buy what they absolutely needed, this halted manufacturing, wasted many products, and made even more people unemployed.
